Zip trekking emerged out of zip lining, which has been used in mountainous areas for hundreds of years. Zip trekking is not a modern sport or activity. In fact, many countries have zip trekking and lining for transportation, delivering supplies, and mail.
The activity has strong historical ties in China, Australia, and jungle regions of Central America. In these countries, zip trekking has been used as a way for people in remote, almost inaccessible regions, to be connected to the outside world.
In more modern history, zip trekking has become associated with eco-tourism, cruise recreational activities, and other tourist purposes. Some of the most popular zip trekking experiences are had in Costa Rica, Australia, and Nicaragua. Many people enjoy trekking across the canopy of the jungle.
